In times gone by, families would constantly spend time together. Every evening, they would gather around the table, eat a dinner, and then chit-chat about the day. Well, those times and well and truly over. Instead, these days, it seems like every member of the family is totally absorbed by technology. From iPads to laptops, there are so many things that distract people.

There’s one major problem with this. You never truly get a chance to bond with your family. If you want to spend some real quality time with them, a board game is a great way to do so. Here are some family-friendly games you may want to try.
Of course, there’s simply no denying the fact that the original Monopoly is one of the greatest family games of all time. I’m sure that you and your loved ones have spent many nights playing (and even arguing over!) this board game. If you’re sick and tired of the same old thing, though, it might be time to change things up a little. Monopoly Ultimate Banking is very much the modern-day version of the original. With an electronic device, you can transfer money, scan properties, and even use credit cards. Nifty, right?
Suspicion is the board game where basically everyone is a crook and a thief. The idea is to steal as much as you can while trying to uncover other crooks in the game. If you can catch them before they catch you, you might just be onto a winner. This is a fun, fast-paced game that every family member will adore.
If you have particularly young kids (between 4 and 6 year olds!), this is the game for you. In short, Zingo is a quick-fire version of bingo. But wait, instead of numbers, each card has simple words of pictures on them. This game doesn’t require much skill, but it does mean that your little ones will be entertained. Bonus.
Connect 4 is a game that basically anyone can play. There’s just one catch; it’s only for two players. If you want a night with the whole family, why not start a tournament? You can take it in turns to play against each other and keep score. Go on! Give it a go.
In this updated version of Pictionary, you and your family can draw, act out, and talk your way to the finish line. The less words you use, the higher you score. If you’re ready to team up and take on one another, this is the game for you!
